Slowly but surely....

The contractor has been working on the master bedroom/bath for about two weeks. He finished today. Yea!
When we bought the log house there was one little problem with the bedroom. The bathroom was wide open to the bedroom.... way beyond my comfort zone. Yikes! Is this a common configuration? Is this what is meant by an 'open' marriage?
Just because we're married, and share all sorts of things, doesn't mean I want to be sitting there on the 'pot', pants around my ankles, having conversations with my spouse. And I have this privacy thing with brushing teeth; don't want an audience while I brush mine, and I sure don't want to watch you brush yours. Just a thing......
And note the closet door, you can just make out the open 1/2 door there. Whoever built this house seems to have run out on door building once they reached this room.



Midway through construction of the new wall and 'pocket door', coming along nicely. The door leaning against the wall is from another room and what we'd asked him to build for the closet to replace the classy tavern door hanging there.



The picture below is the finished bathroom wall and door; taken in the evening, it doesn't accurately portray the soft yellow shade we chose to paint the walls. There is a bit of an angle seen on the new wall, as the walls didn't match up on a straight line. I am very pleased to have a bathroom wall. The new closet door is not shown but beautiful, we still have to stain it.
Stain the door, clean the carpets... we should have furniture in here and be sleeping somewhere other than the living room floor by next week. Not that there is anything wrong with sleeping on the ground, I am an avid camper after all. But dang, I miss my bed, and my sheets, and my blankets, and my lovely mattress.....

I really don't know about some people, for I have seen afew house plans with an open bathroom,
bedroom. NOT for me either, Bathrooms are a time to be alone...
Great, to hear, your place coming along and you can be in real soon, have own bed to sleep in, in your own cabin, in the woods, in the mountains. Sure sounds great to me.
Next better get company cabin fixed up.
Still have al the deer as company?

I love the pictures. I don't think I'd want a bathroom without a door either! Be safe while you're out of town.
